Black Women: 59 Percent Have Multiple Babies’ Daddies, Study Shows

Sun., Apr. 3, 2011 3:17 PM EDT

As if black women needed more wretched news to strengthen the stereotype of them as oversexed animals with low character and self-esteem.

In a study that could be classified as “How does this help America,” University of Michigan demographer Cassandra Dorius, the study’s author, states that 28 percent of American women with two or more children have them with more than one father. Tragically, the percentage for black women is more than twice the national average.

The study concludes that more than 59 percent of black women who have more than one child also have multiple babies’ daddies. Hispanics are a distant second at 35 percent, with white women holding steady at 22 percent.

Some believe the survey could become another way to conveniently categorize sisters as amoral baby-making machines.

“There has been a lot of ink spilled on the love lives of black women, a lot of over-sensationalizing,” said Avis Jones-DeWeever, executive director of the National Council of Negro Women. “What I am concerned about is how it’s going to be sensationalized in the media. I am concerned that this will be another way that this country will put a negative label on black women which, in this country, we have a long history of doing.”

Tami Winfrey Harris is an editorial member of Love Isn’t Enough, a blog that focuses on reproduction and race. She said the University of Michigan study merely reflects a paradigm shift in the country’s view of normal parenting.

“If I was a betting woman, I would guess that many people will point to this fact as an example of the decline in American morality and the cause of a great number of societal ills,” said Winfrey Harris, who is based in Indianapolis. “And because our society likes to police the sexuality of women — especially women of color — these troubles will be laid at our feet.”

Dorius says that the data is reflective of a trend that transcends the myth that this is consigned only to women of low means and limited education.

“We tend to think of women with multiple partner fertility as being only poor single women with little education and money, but in fact at some point, most were married, and working, and going to school, and doing all the things you’re supposed to do to live the American dream,” she said in a university news release. –terry shropshire

    Yep we sure do we and 2,3,4, baby daddyby choice or a more powerful inate live force within our being,and i guess we do it alllll by ourselves…….As a blackwomen our desire to love our men and be loved by our men have taken on a new distorted meaning,recent history has shown that more black men will screw anything with a dress on no matter what race creed or color,.Blackwomen on the other hand has a GOD given inate desire to mate with the man GoD has set before her as a community . Can we help it that our men abuse that inate desire,for him and only him,.not only is it a horrible fault of yours, to blame blackwomen for doing the only true way to insure our natural instinct to keep “black” alive,something in a blackwomen understands the need to continue our black race in its purist form the only way it seems we have been left with………..HOW DARE YOU……

    • Michael

      so i guess you are “keeping black alive” by spending hours on sites like this bashing your brothers and promoting interracial dating? You appear to have a lot of hurt, and scorn built up and like oprah hate all men because of your own dating failures (or failure to get a date). The problem within our culture doesnt not lie solely with black men or women, (each contributes their own shortcomings & failures). But its not right to go public on sights like this and bash your brothers or sistas because all of us would not even be here if it werent for both. As much as you hate black men…., you must realize it took one to help make you!!! I love my sistas and im not going to give up and start dating some white devil (dog) because a few dumb sistas dont appreciate a good man………

      • keepthefaith

        Michael, don’t be so on the defensive. I don’t think the article or study is bashing the Black Man at all. What it is telling us, Black Men and Women alike; in spite of what other races think of it or us. We Black Women love our Black Men in spite of the wows of our historic survival in America. We do not mind barring your children. That, we love our Black Men regardless, unconditionally. And are willing to keep the Black race alive and pure…coming from a 59 year old black women, and mother of five children with five different fathers…Because, if you just open your eyes, and look up n down the eastern national seaboard. You will find, more and more interactional baby mom’s with Black Daddy’s for their babies father…What does that tell us about there women…?
        Love Your Black Queen, who ever she may Be.

        • Andrew Roy

          Good think you had the white mans tax dollars to house and feed those 5 kids from 5 different fathers. And don’t bullshit me and say that isn’t true. We know your lying.

          • MystiKasT

            Blacks hate whites, but largely live off of white tax dollars — ironic, huh?

          • kayman

            Whites complain about blacks living off tax dollars but they control most of the employment in America and will discriminate based on race when it comes to hiring practices. There are many studies showing that a “black sounding name” on the exact same resume is like 3 times less likely to get called for an interview. But of course white people bury their head in the sand and pretend that they aren’t aware of this. So white people essentially sit on a high horse and complain about the problems THAT THEY CREATE. Oh by the way, the majority of government benefits are STILL collected by white people….. Ironic, huh?

          • LaTonya Cox Richards

            Sssshhh, they don’t admit these parts just that we are lazy and don’t want to work. They never tell the parts about “last hired, first fired” or they pay us lower than anybody else or they lock us out of certain positions that pay more or any of the other evil stuff they do.

          • LaTonya Cox Richards

            “white man’s tax dollars” My husband pays taxes too and a significant amount, now what?

          • Littlegunsar Better

            Ohhh, you the minority, represent the majority of your race? what are you not understanding here?

            The MAJORITY of your race, are on welfare.

            Just like the equal number of whites are on welfare. The difference being. 20% of whites are on welfare. of a population of 300 million. Yet 50% of blacks are on welfare of a population of 300 million. So you have a race that has 30% more on welfare. That means your all fucking lazy as a whole. You dont’ judge a society by it’s few, you judge a society by it’s whole.

            So just because you pay taxes. What about the other 50% of you.
            HMMMMM…right…math and statistics….scary stuff. Cause it clashes with what you THINK you know.

    • foodiefriends

      What bullsh–.  Life force my butt.  Use birth control and choose better men to father your children.  Stop repeating your mistakes with yet another child by yet another father.  Get over your paranoia that FACTUAL surveys show what you don’t like.Victimhood is not attractive.

      • joe

        You can’t tell these ppl anything. They don’t care. They just want as many black ppl around as possible. Blacks are every bit as racist as whites. Only difference is they can say it out loud. You know, because hundreds of years ago there were black slaves in America. SO, they can say and do whatever they want with no accountability. Because the second you call out their way of thinking you’ll be labeled a racist.

      Twice as many black women have kids than black men…and 70+% of the time out of wedock. Yall all fuggin the same dude.

      • JazzyJerome

        Exactly and that can be easily proven by court records. Add to the fact the black women have double the rate of HIV of heterosexual black men also proves they are being banged by a small percentage of the men.

    • Mike Brown

      I see what you did there.
      It is the brothers fault that so many sisters make horrible choices w/r to the men they date and ultimately sleep with?
      Im sorry, but I call bullshit….namely because it is bullshit.

      I see this act play out at least once a week. Go to any social gathering….and you will see it time and time again. The guy who has his shit togethor….good credit, no children, advanced degrees, dresses like an adult, and speaks the king’s English is not good enough…or is too soft, or is not exciting…but the idiot who can’t keep a job for longer than 3 months, dresses like he is 50 cent, has 20 kids by 3 different women….and is an all around buffoon….that is they guy you want.

      Sometimes you got to ask yourself…is it everyone else, or is it me?

    • Guest

      Here we go with this nonsense that ignores personal responsibility If you have 4 baby daddy’s it’s your own dumb fault. Close your legs or use birth control. It is your body you have total control. This is the type of logic that causes the problem.

    • Andrew Roy

      Good thing they keep getting welfare. I think after the first kid, no more welfare should be given for a second or third. Watch how the birth rate tumbles then. 8)

    • joe

      Keep you legs closed. You’re not helping by having more babies you can’t raise right.

    Rhonda stop deflecting this onto black men. Take some accountability. Damn, what’s wrong w/black women. So accustomed to attacking your men even when the stats point to black women themselves. God ya’ll are disgusting w/ unaccountability.

    • Gia

      It takes two people to make a baby…so it is not one persons fault! Men wear condoms…not women…how about a visectomy fellows? I saw a guy on M. Povich, he had 9 kids with 7 women…whose fault is that…he was very confused about manhood….I meet a 25 yrs old, had 3 babies with 2 women…he asked if I wanted to have his baby…I told him.._ell No…I don’t want those women calling my house, in which I assumed we would be married. but he had other plans! Thankfully, the women he was with at that time, finished college and is a properous engineer, and was engaged to an African Petro-Chem Engineer & Professor…..The prospective baby-maker went down in the Porn Industry…& busy driving trucks, trying to pay for those kids (dropped out of college)…Tisk..tisk fellas!

      • warhammer axe

        Men have 4 different methods of birth control.
        Women have 17.
        Women choose the men they have sex with.
        Women claim ‘My body, MY CHOICE’, so, just HOW does the sperm get inside a woman’s vagina?
        If a woman chooses not to use birth control, then who’s fault is it if a woman get’s pregnant without doing HER part?
        Sorry, ‘ladies’ but logic dictates that if you want the power of sex and procreation, YOU have to take responsibility for YOUR choices.

        • sam66

          Woman need to stop playing the victim and Admit many of them have babies to try and hold on to the man. What’s so stupid is thy continue to do the same thing over and over again and get the same results. For the record white and Hispanic woman does it as ell.

          • Andrew Roy

            But must be smarter, because they don’t as the study suggests, have as many multiple babies.

          • MystiKasT

            Whites and asians dont have 1/4 as many kids from 4-5 baby dadies like blacks do

      • Omnipotens Maximus Rex

        True indeed, “takes two to make a baby,” but let’s see what it takes ONE to do. 1) Not use one of the ELEVEN FORMS of control that’s available to women. Men only have three forms of birth control, A) Rubbers, B) Evasive surgery C) Not have sex. 2) It takes ONLY ONE to decide to let a man “run up in it raw.” Why would allow a man (other than your husband who you’re on good terms with,) to have sex with you without a rubber? 3) It takes ONE to decide to have an abortion. The fact is that society has allowed women, (especially African American women,) to become the most irresponsible beings on the planet. Society holds children to a higher of responsibility than they do women. Since women aren’t held accountable for their actions, because they have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO LOSE BY BECOMING A SINGLE MOTHER! It’s the duty of black men to stop this nonsense, and black men do by not dealing with single mothers. A single mother has nothing to offer you except heartache, stress, chaos and confusion to your life. Black men need to date and marry women without children, start your own legacy. Once women start to see that they can’t get a man due to her irresponsible behavior, then girls and women coming up behind her will be more prudent in their decision making and that the appropriate steps to stop unwanted pregnancies from happening. As far as the single mothers, they have men in their lives, their baby’s fathers, let them go make a life with them.

        • JazzyJerome

          A to the mother fuckin men!

      • nsu1997

        How is it other races of women seem to not have this issue, when they have sex probably to the same degree as black women?

        • sam66

          Other races of woman are having this same problem.

          • nsu1997

            What other race of women is unable to stop having the majority of their children out of wedlock with multiple men? For what it’s worth, I would suspect the same applies to black men, but to only half as many as black women (because statistically twice as many black women have kids than black men).

            It seems that other races of women, no matter how much unprotected sex they may have, hardly ever seem to have kids OOW. No matter what the man does. For example, look at all the white women Tiger Woods humped on the sly…NONE of them had his child that I know of…and he’s fabulously wealthy. Now imagine if those were all black women? How many of them would have been chasing his rugrats around as I type right now? Probably all of them if they could. This is a matter of culture between the races of women. It seems to be part of the black female culture to have OOW kids and typically with multiple men (the same guys).

            I just don’t see this occurring much at all outside the black race.

          • Andrew Roy

            Because white women want a relationship first. KIds later. They don’t look at the kids as bargaining chips until after the divorce.

          • nsu1997

            Sadly you are 100% correct. Having babies for child support income or sec8 housing is a really low-level hustle.

          • Truth sayer

            Andrew, your words sadden me. I am a black woman who recently celebrated her one year wedding anniversary to a wonderful black man. Now that we passed the year mark, we are planning to start our family. I never dreamed of having a baby to trick him or gain a “pay day”. This baby will be the first child for both of us, and we are in our mid-thirties. We cannot generalize an entire race based on the actions of a few.

          • Andrew Roy

            Okay great.

            We cannot generalize an entire race based on the actions of a few.

            STATISTICS SAY…..

            http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/jul/29/don-lemon/cnns-don-lemon-says-more-72-percent-african-americ/

            72% of black women have kids out of wedlock.

            So ya, i agree. We shouldn’t generalize an entire people, because of a few. YOU are the few. And we can’t hold you up to the standard as an average black person.

            Now can we 8)

            I just love how your argument is so simplistic, and easily rebuffed.

          Personal responsibility.

          • nsu1997

            Exactly. It’s a cultural standard within other races.

            What really gets me is how some of these ladies seem to truly believe their “market value” is just as high with a brood of kids as it was when they were childless. Every single other race of women know when they are on the dating scene with kids their market value flat out goes down accordingly, especially in their 20s with kids.

          • JazzyJerome

            That’s because the men won’t deal with them. Black men will take the apple that has fallen from the tree.

          • Andrew Roy

            No, doubtful. black men don’t consider the kids in the equation, because they dont’ plan on staying with this girl longer than they have to. And this statement is true. Or else these statistics would not be what they are.

          • nsu1997

            Very true. Way too many overly-thirsty black dudes who will validate anything with a hole between its legs. Giving unwarranted attention to unworthy women. In my past I was guilty of this myself but no more.

            White dudes don’t play that sht PERIOD. They won’t check for a woman with kids. And guess what, their women fall right in line. Black women have babies by anybody only because they can still get a good man, even after the baggage. In that respect it’s OUR fault as black men for validating that ratchetness.

          • Andrew Roy

            Some white guys do end up with women with kids. But the kids usually are neglected. Usually, though, if a white guy ends up with a girl with kids, its’ a hump and dump. And the white guy will NOT want to have kids with her. He will make sure of that. But yes, most white men want a woman with no kids. Because seeing a kid, from another father. Reminds you of your wife or GF’s past infidelities. No kids, no proof.

       Marcus and the rest of the demonic black men on here scapegoating black women – how about taking some time to raise sons that respect women instead of teaching them to sweet talk them with false lies of committment and then leaving them with a baby? blackmen have nerve to castigate black women – no race on earth except the black race in america willingly leaves so many women and children to fend for themselves. face it – too many black men act like dogs in heat and come to black women for one thing – sex and a ego stroke, not for carig, committment or family. admit to your utter hatred of black women and go on about your day, evil devils.

      • warhammeraxe

        Why is it a man’s responsibility to ‘teach’ women to be respected when they 1) don’t EARN it, 2) believe what makes them FEEL good instead of working at EARNING love and respect? BTW, remember the ‘black power’ movement, you know, when black men DID defend black women, who promptly dropped them for access to government $$$$, kicked them out the house for welfare, declared themselves ‘strong, independent and can do bad by themselves’…so, now that you aren’t judged by your loose behavior, now that you are seen more as ‘bust it babies’ rather than wife material, why do you think someone OWES you anything in the realm of ‘respect’? You still think you can trash and attack men and still EXPECT them to be there for you.

        We have a saying as men….

        Bed.

        Lie.

        • Estella Cohen

          I think that is a great question. “Why is it a man’s responsibility to ‘teach’ women to be respected? Basically because the first ‘man’ that any woman knows (in a non-sexual way) is her father.He teaches her love of self by him before anyone else. Fathers are not only missing in Black boys lives,but their “real’ neglect is shown in their absence in the lives of “today’s” Black females. It is lack of basic love that wasn’t missing just a few generations ago.Our often sad willingness as women to hold on to anything or anyone as love leaves so many Black women also, never married. Willing and hoping for the BMW that never comes,that never recognizes us. Willing to be Black,with multiple fathers,often also leaves willing to be never married.

      • Omnipotens Maximus Rex

        No other race’s women are literally having babies with any and everybody? Answer me this, what’s so hard about finding a contraceptive that you can use, making sure that partner wears a rubber, and not having children till after you’re married. Let ole Rex enlighten you ladies to something. A man that will have sex with you without a condom is showing you his character and level of responsibility, which is little to none. For him to “not to take of his child,” should be as a big shock to because he’s just sticking with an already established pattern of behavior. Children will not turn irresponsible men into paragons of responsibility. The sooner women realize and accept this as fact, the better off they’ll be.

      • Suzanna Lytle

        because most of them don’t sweet talk the women they treat them like trash but that “thug” mentality seems to be what these women want.they already know there not going to stick around and the women want that they aren’t looking for marriage there looking for babies and welfare checks because that’s a easier lifestyle for them. they need the babies they cant afford to get free housing and food and healthcare and 10$ cable and internet from comcast every month. they cant get that if the baby daddy sticks around and commits and they know that. in fact many of the blacks women that I have met purposely keep the fathers who want to spend time with there children out of there lives.

      • chelledc

        I thought our numbers were reported more because of the type of healthcare many poor or uninsured women use. I would think that clinics are mroe likely to report their numbers than hospitals and private practices.
        While we could still have more of anything because more of our small population fall into a category, many of these stats are about percentages not sheer numbers. It is also easier to have a higher percentage because it only takes a few people to make the percentage points jump up. If there are only two of us and I screw up it becomes a 50% stat. It takes 500,000 people to make 1 million folks look like screw ups.

      • blackfargo

        It’s all about proportions and percentages, not so much in gross numbers.  Basically, if you can boil down other populations into equivalent numbers, then there is no argument, but that generally hasn’t been the case with the black community.

      • nsu1997

        “Per capita.” Look it up.

      • Suzanna Lytle

        Because they are taking the women from each ethnic group determining the percentage of women who have babies daddy’s . they then take the final percentage from each group and compare it with each other ethnic group. in the black community it turns out that 59% of the women have baby daddies. now that is a percentage of just the women in the black community not a percentage of all women. then they took women from the white community they had a percentage of 22% of women who had baby daddies and then they did the same with the hispanic community and came out with 35%. those are the numbers I am sorry if you find it insulting but the black women as a whole have a higher percentage of women with multiple babies by multiple men who don’t marry them and never planned on marrying them.

    The truth hurts! it’s a damn shame black girls don’t wear a condom or make these boys wear them. I’m a blk woman and mother of two by the same man MY husband. That’s where the real problem begins blk women are having babies with men who aren’t even trying to value them or their children. My momma told me as a little girl there was no way she was going to tell her kids. today your daddy is coming to get you and then your daddy will be here Saturday. I took the same course. One man a husband for the father of my children. If we don’t work out my baby days are over!

    • http://twitter.com/diamond220 Diamond Parker

      I am 30 and so many people are surprised, as a black woman, I do not have any children.  When asked about children I always show them my empty ring finger.  It’s sad that people do not understand the correlation between marriage and a family.  I will not start a family until after I am married. I am tired of hearing the baby momma and baby daddy lingo.  I also find it hard to stomach when I hear a young lady (term used loosely, no pun intended) talking about her baby daddy “ain’t ish” when she has more than one…who is the common denominator?  Please as women we must empower ourselves to make better decisions.

      • Blackmamba2583

        Just because you wait until you are married to have kids does not guarantee that your marriage will last forever. Shyt happens and the statistics don’t lie….50% of ALL marriages fail….period. And it is soooo much easier for the man to leave his family when it does! Guess who’s left to raise the children?

        • chelledc

          I think the point is that you show that you intend on sticking around. Sure it may not work out and he may leave just like a single guy but the assumption is that you’re showing that you want to make a family. At least you’re chipping in on bills, signing your name on things and seeming lik eyou’re going to take responsibility. I’m not one to think that marriage is the end all be all of things but many of these single couples making babies aren’t even living together or doing anything which makes it look like they plan on being together for a while.

        • nsu1997

          You just created a completely different argument than those ladies were making, then attempted to attribute that argument to them. This is called a “red herring.”

        • Suzanna Lytle

          yes but that is different than not making a commitment to the women or the child from the moment after conception on. at least the 50% that failed can claim they tried and failed instead of never trying at all.

      • chelledc

        What I don’t get is how people act like it’s impossible to reach that age without kids. Haha! It’s like they think birth control is a myth. I’ll even give someone one kid but when they get into 2 kids with this women and 2 or 3 women in the same boat with no long terms committments in there I get so so confused. Why would you purposefully put a baby in a woman when you don’t plan on taking care of it? Why do you want to get knocked up by some dude you’ve been having sex with for a few months? Why aren’t the people who act like this afraid of AIDS and other diseases?

      • Andrew Roy

        You are just smarter than the rest. Credit yourself with that. When your ready, you will know. And you can squarely look at your kid in the eyes and say “yes, you were planned”.

        dont feel bad I am almost 30 and i hear all sort of crap when other women hear i don’t have kids “mostly by women with 3-7 kids and no father” and your right they don’t seem to understand when I tell them I don’t have a ring I am not having kids when I can barely afford to take care of myself. and i cant stand the term baby daddy myself in my days we called them SPERM DONORS you know men who can commit to sex but not to the biological response to sex which is pregnancy.

  • Rhonda402001

    Yea ,i guess even the educated black do black on black crimes,blackwomen dont need to be put down by our own, i bet the very writer that wroth this ad has abandonded several himself ,living somewhere with his new wealthy a women of another race,living once again a single black female.I work at the welfare office in a prodomantly black neighaborhood,7am every morning i see about 3 to 4 single black women in line with their babies waiting for the doors to open, But all day after that I see hundreds of mexicans ,The mexican men pull up in very expencive ford trucks and beautiful 4 wheel drives and they outside in their vehicles waiting for their women and children,the mexican men that dont wait in the car are in the welfare office watching the kids,THIS goes on daily,the point i make once again,that blackmen abandon their women,(im sure she “blackwomen” would stop with one baby daddy,.

    • Michael

      If black women would treat black men right (like women of other races treat theirs) we wouldn’t be out trying to find love elsewhere. Black women are busy trying to “be the man” instead of respecting the black man uplifiting and supporting him. They have become our harshest critics and worse enemies. The willie lynch plan is still working! and to top it all of in typical fashion black women make themselves out to be the victim and blame the black man (who is the real victim)…

      • Mzmcmurray

        What a gross generalization!! The worst racism exists within our own culture…how can you, Michael, make such a broad statement about black women?! You’ve never met me so how can you describe “how I am” based on your experiences with other women or what you’ve heard?? A black WOMAN, not hood-rat or ghetto chick, has the purest form of love and support for her black king. She doesn’t tolerate  disrespect and cares for her household  before caring for herself! Historicly, you won’t find a stronger group of women, we held our families together in the midst of the horror of slavery, we watched helplessly as our children were taken from us and sold, we laid helplessly as slave owner’s took our most valued treasure, we sat in, protested, marched and fought…Damn straight, we ARE strong women, we are QUEENS and though a queen is powerful, she NEVER tries to overpower the KING!! More black men need to assume the role AND responsibility of a King instead of wanting a Queen to bow down to a thug…get it right

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=743845213 Tonya Marie

        Black women are not trying to be men. Let’s get this straight, we just don’t adopt the feeble fragile gender stereotype of your Caucasian, or your submissive Asiatic. We are our own people, and we set the standard for what we are capable of. Since you’ve become addicted to this watered down version of the original womb, you think you have the right to tell her where her place is and how to act. Willie Lynch was a theory not a truth. 

        • chelledc

          The funny thing is most Caucasian and Asian women I know don’t embody this stereotype either. I wonder if those who seem to be that type of women are dumbing it down for black black guys because they know the game. Hahaha!

    • Devin1150

      Sorry to say this but society brought black men down a long time ago they also supported the more rights for black women to bring us down with child support system and education they are more grants and education support towards every other race including black women also support groups towards black women some where in 80′ 90′ me being rise by my mother working two three jobs putting me through school I realize living my life I notice black women does put up a lot of B.S for no damn reason at all and some how they look for love in all the wrong places but then again it’s our fault black men as a whole. Keep in mind black men put up alot of stress just living there lives daily going to school and going home is hard enough dealing with teachers telling you you ain’t going to amount to anything in life then going home and having your mother telling you ain’t shit just like your daddy then society with racial profiling its more then likely you can get a record then college degree well I should say

      • chelledc

        Please explain how the child support system brings a man down. You pay for the kids you made. Where is the downside?

        • Darth H8er

          The downside is when a man winds up financially supporting kids he doesn’t get to raise (she’s holding them hostage) or those kids aren’t his but the state makes him pay anyway. The whole child support industry is a hustle that many black women are taking advantage of rather than forming committed relationships first and THEN having their children within marriage. Since 70% of black babies are born out of wedlock and there are so many birth control options including abortion (which BW are not shy to take advantage of either), we know the OOW birthrates are no accident. Only someone with a conflict of interest sees nothing wrong with this picture.

          • Tracey C

            Or someone thinks that men have option0s (that would be me). Most women are not going around taking sperm out of a condom and turkey basting their way to a kid. The vast majority are having unprotected sex with men who know that they are not using a condom and that the woman is no on the pill and then out comes a baby. Many are in what they think will be long term relationships. Some marry and some don’t. If you think black women are “taking advantage” of it as if it makes economic sense to create one of the biggest money sucks ever (a baby) in order to get money from some guy then you’re not very good at math. This would make sense if the majority of unwed mom’s were being impregnated by men with really nice jobs or prospects better than their own but stats don’t show that to be the case for most.

            The OOW are an accident for some and done on purpose by others. Ask people who date around with no kids if they’ve ever had unprotected sex. Many have just ended up lucky that they didn’t get knocked up. Similar behaviors but different outcomes.

            Most guys I know who are paying child support are fully in their kids lives. They are either with women who aren’t crazy and petty or they have gone to court and fought for shared custody because the woman has no legal reason to deny them.

            What conflict of interest would I have?
            They did a great study recently on marital status in 2011. I would love it if they could do that for black women so we can see real trends. Do women who make more and/or have more education have 2 or more kids with many dads? Do they marry any of the dads? Do they stay with the dad for years before breaking up as many married people do? It would also be nice to see some numbers on these guys. How many are like the guys I see on tv with 12 baby mamas and 13 kids? How likely is a guy who has out of wedlock kids to have more than one and how many women do they tend to impregnate? How likely were any of these people to be born in a house with 2 parents? What generation were all of these people born into?

            BLacks hate whites, yet whites pay their welfare — odd, isn’t it? Send em back to africa!

          • TraceyDC

            Conflict of interest? And what would that conflict be? Black women do not have the child support game and last I checked men were very capable of taking precautions in order to keep their stern from entering a woman’s body.
            Very rarely does a man pay for kids that are not his and paternity tests are a viable solution to keep this from happening in the first place. I think it’s silly that they have to pay for trusting and untrustworthy woman and feel that the responsibility to name the correct father is on her, with an exception given for those who have been raped. The man named who is not the dad still shouldn’t have to pay but I can understand the inability to name the correct man.
            I wish there was a statistic to show how many women are in committed non marital relationships instead of flings when they conceive. I have an idea that it’s not as many fly by night encounters and cases of entrapment that produces these new little people.

  • Gia

    Well…I’m a Black Women with no children…My Rule is ..No Marrige…No Baby! As long as we have birth control available…pregnancy becomes an option only. Actually my grandmother told us this as children…also encouraged us to avoid intimate relationships with men less educated than ourselves, but it will only be a fight. ..All my siblings (4) are on second marriages with children from both…and walked away from accumulated possessions of the first marriage, due to seeking peace.

    I don’t think these women are amoral baby making machine…why not interview them, and get their opinion.
    I think it is the way they are socialized, to be polite, while facing preditory men, taking advantage of politeness…..as in date rape and association rape! There are studies out of the Johns Hopkins University which shows, if you take a species from an environment where they can survive, they kill one another, and become over-sex. This was the conclusion on male test subjects…So…It is the males who are over-sexed!Let’s Talk!!!

  • Gia

    And surprisingly…I just saw some relationalship videos on You Tube, where the statistics show, the most successful interracial relationships are between Black Women & White Men and Black Women & Latino Men…The Black Males have a higher rate of failure in these interracial unions…so what does that say about who is at fault??!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wz1vE9ddgzE ……(Voile!)…

    Please do not take any of these surveys seriously. According the the united States Census, people of North African and Middle Eastern descent are catagorized as White, which is not true so many of these surveys are not accurate at all, http://www.change.org/petitions/correcting-the-race-and-ethnic-section-on-us-applications#?opt_new=f&opt_fb=t
    . Also more Native African, African American and Latino men have more babies with multiple women than women have with multiple men and that is a big problem which society should try to solve. President Obama has addressed the problem with dead-beat dads who hit it and leaves women to raise children alone. Men should be men and be more responsible for their kids and be real husbands and not sorry dummies.

    • Gia

      Dialogue is important…As a multi-generational American, my mothers side was Africa & Native American…my fathers side was African, Hawaiian & Japanese…But I am considered AfricanAmerican..In Numerous US states, interracial marriage is still against the law (over-ruled by the US Constitution). All those laws specify who can’t marry a White Person. Those Marked as the under-class were those of African Descent, Meztiso (Indian), and Mongol (Asian). Those classified as White are Latino/Hispanic (European Descent) & Arabs…Thanks to the Jews (European Descent-who claims everyone is anti-semetic). but since the Bell-Curve Studies in 1992..a White author determined that Asians were the smartest in the world, then White, Latino & Last Africa…..The latinos parade around taking minority jobs created by the civil rights movement, when all the time..they knew they were classified as White.

      I agree because more men have multiple babies then women. I met a guy a few months ago that had 31 kids and 12 baby mama’s. My initial response was “Run girl, AIDS candidate” then I held a conversation with the brotha and educated him on how NASTY it is to not use protection. How disgraceful it is to father children you don’t intend to take care of and how he just set our race back another 100 years trying to be a freakin player.

      your so right about that my oldest son dad just had another child by a black girl  he has 2 little girls by a white girl and has 2 by me and im mixed and its really hard to swallow why are u still making babies and can’t take care of the children u already got and don’t even try to do anything I Thank God for a real black man but the dead beat black dads its really sad brothas its time to wake up and take care of ur responsibility not leaving everything on the next man

The reason you see a lot of sistas by themeselves isnt always because the man “abandoned” his family. I know you dont want to hear this but believe it or not a lot of them get “ran off” by some loud-mouthed, strong,so-called “independent” woman whos had this bullshi mindset reenforced by the likes of oprah, essence magazine and all these other jewish controlled outlets… Black women are the most demanding, hard to please and pickiest of all women… it stands to reason why they are also the loneliest….

      Im must comment. But black women must accept responsibilty as well. Its not any of our fault. Its the Willy Lynch theory in full effect. Stop blaming black men. We’ve been programmed for this. And womens lyb wasnt for the black women. Its was created for white women but black women jumped on the band wagon and now we have mean black women who dont know how to treat a respectable black man then they get what they ask for. The black man with money whom all the women are after for the moment because he’s showing his money off and it wont last long. Once she figure that out then its too late because she got caught up in the hype. The big car and accessories. Dont allow your eyes to fool u either. They do deceive. As well as the ears. No who u are. And stop being bitter and get over your childhood fears that tend to hender black people (men and women alike) in their adult life. Its so much to say but it boils down to accepting responsibility on both parties. Why he left. Were u the groupie or were u geniune when u got with him. My last girlfriend was a groupie and when she realized i wasnt the person she heard about from the stories. She was disappointed. So who ever she’s with. Better him than me. With the superficial ways of many black women. Its tv, music, media hype etc. thats destroying the fabric of our great country. Dont blame it on black men. We’re just like u. Caught up in the hype. “What women want”.

      I think you should ask yourself why this is happening. Maybe black women should do constructive things with themselves so that they won’t continue feeling shame and abandonment. I see abandonment is a serious issue in the black community and I think instead of blaming all black guys, bw who are dealing with this should seek counseling or get a book on how to deal with it. It seems we’re going in circles, complaining, blaming, whining, etc. won’t change your situation. Those men who are with others were never with you…they are guys who picked partners on their path. I think bw focus too much on the negative. They feel left behind and instead of feeling left behind you need to see it as an opportunity to develop yourself and find what it is you really want. By the way they regard black men, I really don’t think a lot of these women really even like black men as beings. They only care about them because they are stuck and can’t move beyond them due to their own limitations. When you’re stuck facing a problem, think about changing the lens that you see through. It can make a world of difference.

Yet he had a brief relationship @ the age of 21 (about 13 yrs ago) and had a kid with this woman. He is good enough to pay Child Support but can’t see his child and this woman is on her 4th Child all have her last name and all 4 different men on Child Support. Now her Race does not define her actions but its sad when you live off the Welfare system and basically Prey on Good Men to Reproduce so you can sit back and collect Welfare and receive large tax returns ?

    @Rhonda,I see more “loyal” black women than I care to admit, with one or more children from a black guy,Asian guy,Latin guy,Indian guy and or white guy.Have even had a few that had kids by a white guy,get dumped after use,have the overies to think I or my friends want to date them.The only reason more black women are not having kids by and dating non black men is because the other guys only want to sleep with them.Not have open relationships with them,and children with them,just sleep with them.And make them have an abortion if they do get pregnant.Thank God,the truth about black women is finally coming to light.You people have been exaggerating a lot of the stuff black men have done and a lot of times baring false witness against black men,now the truth ,no exaggerations about you people has started to come out,and you can’t handle the truth.Stop lying on us,and we will stop telling the truth on you.

    • Rhonda402001

      well Rain My wonderful white husband would disagree with u totally, when black women want to give energy to a whiteman we get all his love and commentment,things that blackmen dont give ,black men dont even give real love to other races of women most white ,asian women i know ,after loving and having kids by a blackman end up bitter and angry , because they find out just like sisters have that most black men are loser, and wont take care of theim,we all know that black men date outside his race for the ease of not having to work like a man and provide like a man , he will seek out white women an other races of women to take care of them , we Know that by now.

    • Bago11225

      Nah they need to stop lying on black men and we still need to tell the truth about them. We all know by now that we do not need to hear about stats to know that black women have multiple baby daddies, we see it all the time in our communities across the U.S. so the so call shock these women are so call displaying is hilarious at the same time still trying to shift blame onto black men when the damn article is talking about black women. i mean what the hell. Its like blaming Elvis for robbery when we all know Elvis is dead and buried, lets get real here. Lets face it, these women will always be delusional, always unaccountable and just str8 blaming other people for their issues, if they want to blame black men, then who is to blame with the amount of high abortion rates? What every black man placed a gun to every black woman head to get an abortion, this is the 21st century, its 2011 and by now, people are just not talking the things black women say seriously anymore because it has come to a point that their credibility just sucks,

      • Uncle Chuck

        …and, judging by the vast number of birth control methods available today it’s my opinion that any women who gets pregnant today WANTS to get pregnant (of course I don’t include rape victims). If she didn’t want to get pregnant she’d use some form of birth control.

    @Vexenth,you are a lady.I only had children with my wife,and she only with me.I can’t even relate to having children with just anybody.I would not trust letting these excuse making,loose women keep my puppy.Girls and women that keep their legs shut and undies up and under,are unplanned baby free and virus free.And it is so much easier to think clearly and walk away from a ” trifling,low down,down low,dog”,if you have the self control to find this out before you sleep with him.

    Damn Marcus,you better be careful how you tell the truth,straight and no chaser.Accountability is a nasty word for far too many Oprahrized black women.They are like dictators,calling them out makes you the bad guy.”You are just an angry and bitter black man that can’t handle a strong black woman”.

  • The Rain

    @Goldenafricanqueen,just like Marcus said,you people are disgusting with trying to duck your own accountability.The only person you can control is yourself,so I advise you to get some self control.And we don’t need a survey to tell us what we see everyday.We all know more than one black woman that has two or more baby daddies,stop trying to bend reality.Are you one of those loose women they are talking about?Thou do protest much.

  • The Rain

    @Rhonda402001,nothing is perfect.The rule is, is the vast majority of White,Latino,Asian men are not going to marry,or even be seen in public with black women.If,and I mean if,some white guy lowered his standards and married you,he is not the rule,but the exception to the rule.And if I were he I would be very concerned with your still obvious obsession with black men.To hear you tell it,you have moved on to better things,ie,a white guy.So why in hell would you even care what black men do.So what you need to do is go back and tell other black women to stop sleeping with,having multiple kids by multiple black guys and leave us alone.Since we are allllll scumbags and losers,what in the hell does that make black women that have kids by us scumbags and losers and can’t get enough of our meat whistles?And You are a liar,look around,Asian,White.Indian and Latino women can’t get enough of Brothers,this is what’s driving black women insane in the first place.And if White or any other race of males were marrying black women,you would not be 75% single.And reading your thoughts,your “husband” is obviously desperate,because you are not that sharp.You need to tell the Asian,White and Latino women that black men are losers,because they did not get that memo.And we all know that if a brother would relax his standards and have you,you would be right across on this side of the fence.You are just mad because you can get a black man, because you are a loser.I have had a number of black women that dated white guys,get dumped by them,then come running up in my face as if I won’t some white boy’s left over bed winch.Not!I tell black men to never date a black woman that dated white guys.Because they are now soiled.

    • Christina Kirksey

      Rain, you should stop categorizing all black women, because there are some beautiful, quality black women that are marriage material, particularly to whites. It’s the quality of the woman, not her race that he will marry. William Cohen married Janet Cohen and she was the First Lady of the Pentagon. He married a good, quality woman not just a black woman. You’re more racist than they would be.

    @Rhonda402001,are you a teacher or do you work at the welfare office? On one post you said you were a teacher,on another you said you worked at the Welfare office.I can’t always make the PTA meeting because I work late.When I do make the PTA,I see just as many Brothers and some time more than I do Sisters.If you see only black women and the men are not there because they are at work,That’s more of an indictment on the character or lack there of, of those women than the men.How many Brothers work late and work two jobs,so that mother you see “all alone”doesn’t have to work and is able to make the PTA,hang out with her friends at the spa,go shopping,traveling,drive that nice car and live in that nice home?I was taken aback that one of my children’s favorite teacher got pregnant and had a baby out of wedlock and never tried to concealed the fact.This was frowned upon when I was a child.I was taken aback even more when I saw the immature young guy this “educated”black women chose to have a baby out of wedlock with.

  • The Rain

    @Rhonda402001,you are disgusted by black men,but you need them to validate your existence.If you could get one and keep one you would have one.Good black women and good black men have been covering for the rest of you douche nozzles.That is the only reason you have been able to fool a lot of people.Good black women and good black men know plenty of and are related to a lot of trifling black women that have more than one baby daddy,has slept with their sister’s husband,had a baby by one guy but have their husband or boyfriend think the child is his,use abortion as a means of birth control,use their children as meal tickets and early retirement plans , or are just hozes,etc,but the good women and good men cover for these people because if they admit the truth,they would have to admit their friend,neighbor, cousin,aunt,sister,granny and own momma,has some major character flaws when it comes to their libido.It’s only human nature to not want to see the women you have been taught to look up to and in a lot of cases,worship,in such an unflattering light.If we laid out all the filth that black men do before God,and all the filth black women do before God,not man or woman,before God,the stuff black men do would look tame.Yalls’ dirt is starting to come out and you don’t look so good .A black man can be rich and good looking,like a women and still not be able to sleep with her if she is not interested.A broke and average looking black women with an average body,has a far greater chance of sleeping with any Brother she choose to.

  • The Rain

    @Rhonda402001,you said all that horse shit about black men showing affection for white women and then said you are married to a white guy.Wow!You are the problem with black women.Good black women had better separate themselves from your ilk or they are going to sink to even greater lows.We have to stop covering for the unacceptable behavior of black women because we don’t want to indict our sisters,aunts,mothers and grand mothers.If we are going to call men out for their dirt,we must not pretend that we don’t see the even dirtier stuff that black women do and get away with because good women and good men cover for them.You and only you can keep a guy out of your draws.I blame good black women and good black men for enabling you horny clowns.Brothers please stop,look and listen to these tramps.Every Tuesday on the Rickey Smiley show they have a paternity test.90% of the time,the guy who thought he was the daddy finds out he is not.And a couple of times there is a third suspected father in the picture.Hell,I worked with a 23 year old that has two kids by two different guys .If they hate black men so much,why can’t they keep them draws up when these”no good”,”scum bags”come around.I took my time and picked a good mother for my children.I was not about to have my precious children be born to what I see passing it’s self off as ladies these days.And I mentor young guys to be even more picky about who they sleep with and have children by.So you should be giving me a reward for helping you out.I am tired of my money being taken out of my check to feed,house (section 8) and clothes some welfare hoochie.Fellas,they are not worth it.Don’t sleep with anybody that you don’t want to have a kid with.Choose a lady that respects herself.You should not respect anyone more than they respect themselves.And please get to know her mother and the other women in her life.(their daddy too)If their mother,aunts,sisters and friends have children out of wedlock and many baby daddies,chances are they will too,so run as fast as you can from this baby factory.

  • R_R

    Well, just look at the overall culture. Back in the 70’s Marvin Gaye sang about getting married! Today men and women sing and rap about all kinds of sex acts without any love or commitment. Without assigning blame it is true that “our” culture is not creating high expectations of behavior from Black men or women. Sadly, Black people seem not to want to love and partner with each other any more. If women are so naive that they think having a baby will make a man stay – that’s sad and it doesn’t seem to work out like that anyway. But men should also know that making a baby isn’t like blowing your nose and throwing the tissue away, men are also responsiblet o care for what they create. Both black men and women need to step up their Love Game, Self Love and Love for our People. Most of us could use therapy, more exercise and a better diet. It’s so sad that at a time in history when in some ways we are the most FREE we’ve ever been – we limit ourselves with this self-destructive behavior. And BTW all the mean spirited comments don’t help. As Plato said “Be Kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

  • The Rain

    @R_R,I understand where you are coming from,but it never ceases to amaze me how no one speaks up about all the nasty things that are said about black men,the exaggerations about us in books and the media,and no one cares about why we do wrong,when we do wrong.They just jump on it and ride it for as long as they can because they feel they may never get that chance to put down a black man again or for a long time.It’s a way to rise on the social stratus ladder,and it overshadows and distracts from the real dirt that white males and black females do.God is not pleased with the exaggerations,cover ups and half truths,so the real truth about you people is starting to come out.And truth be told,black women have long ago lost the privilege of black men lying ,covering up,and taking the blame for your dirt,bad behavior and lack of self control and the ability to make good choices.You ingrates are not loyal enough to black men for us to continue covering for you,and just like spoiled brats,you only get worst when no one calls you out on your poor choice in men,poor choices in who sire your babies,your poor eating habits,your poor spending habits,and your self centeredness.The word “mean”,is a relative term.If a black man says he doesn’t want to date or marry a women with children,who is overweight and has bad credit,say black women talk too much,or need to stay out the club on school nights,you would say he was being mean.

  • The Rain

    I mentor young men to abstain from sex until they are mature enough to deal with the consequences of it and the emotional side affects and it’s distractive effects.I can do this until I am blue in the face,but if you “strong”,”educated”,black women don’t teach and mentor young girls by example,to respect themselves,that their bodies are sacred,sex is not a recreational past time,sex is never a commodity to be traded for food,clothes,electronics,cars,furniture,car notes,cosigning on a loan,utility bills,mortgage,stuff is going to get even worst.If you teach girls to respect themselves,a boy will have to respect them just to say hi.No boy is going to respect a girl more than she respects herself.An attractive boy from a good family can desire to sleep with an average girl from the projects,but still can’t do it unless she gives in.An average looking girl from the hood can sleep with damn near any guy she chose.It’s black women’s fault that they are too caught in their shopping,overeating,self edification and self centeredness to teach and train young girls.

  • Tnikkiwest

    Its just another way to divide us,ppl…..Black men and women BOTH have a responsibility as to making children.We need to get it together :(

  • Schanellthomas

    This article pisses me off for two reasons. First of all the statistics are based off what group of black women. I have two children ages 3 and 15 and both where from marriages.So what I have two different baby daddies now I am a freaking statistic. Yeah nice keep uplifting our self esteem. Truth is white and hispanic women have just as many children through adultery and as single women then black women. Also they are more likely to become welfare recipients because of culture bias our society and government has placed on all of us. Most black women I know such as myself who are single with children are educated with a degree, self improved and employed just not lax to the point of settling. So please don’t belittle us anymore that our ancestors have already endured. We are a people if you don’t like what you see then DAMN, Do something about it..

  • Tychallat7

    @Schanellthomas,you really don’t have anything to be ashamed of if you were married.The problem is most of the black women with more than one baby daddy has never been married to any of the guys they had children by.And let’s be honest here,we don’t need a study or anyone or anything to tell us what we see every day.I personally know a 35 year old divorced mother of 16 and 17 year old girls by her former husband,is now 7 months pregnant by her now boyfriend.What kind of example is that to set for those girls?Be angry,but be angry at the women that disrespect themselves and their family by carrying on in such a disrespectful way. Be angry and then go mentor young girls and women to not continue this foolishness.My buddies and I will mentor the boys and young men.

  • TINA

    well, all I can say is we black women have to make sure that we live in a way that defies stereotypes. We each need to take personal responsibility to be the opposite of what the media portrays. We we begin to do this in large numbers, then the media will leave us alone and people will believe what they see everyday not what they read in an article or see on tv on occasion. We have to take personal responsibility to be good beings of high character and morals.

  • AmHistoryTeacher

    Alice Jones-Deweever,  “What I am concerned about is how it’s going to be sensationalized in the media. I am concerned that this will be another way that this country will put a negative label on black women which, in this country, we have a long history of doing.”

    Actions speak louder than words.

    If black women don’t want to be known as “stereotyped oversexed animals with low character and esteem” then don’t have babies out of wedlock with multiple sperm donors. 59% of black women having babies with multiple sperm donors and 72% of all black babies born out of wedlock are verifiable statistics. Change the reality and the stereotype will change. 72% of black babies born to two parent homes would do more to change the “stereotype” and our society, for the better, than all such excusing words as yours.

    • Sax_chick

      The people you’re addressing aren’t reading this, they are too busy dancing to “Don’t hide that pussy, divide that pussy!” yeah i heard those exact lyrics at a party at my school and every female in the room got up and danced to it like they were somehow incapable of listening to lyrics. The rest of the song was no better. Sadly the few people who are fed up and actually care about the decline in morals of the black race already make up that 41% and because, according to these statistics, 59% have multiple baby fathers, the 41% having children with one father will have to struggle to keep up in order for our numbers to grow. Sadly that 41% is going to continue to get smaller and smaller as the 59% grows larger much faster. Also we can’t truly blame the black man for this, as they say “It takes two to tango” and black men keep up this behavior because obviously someone is puttong up with it. Its like I told the females in my dorm at forum. Everyone complained about sagging saying it was an eyesore and disgusting. I simply stated “I have never seen a single guy sagging.” We as women have to stop complaining about behaviors of the black men, then turning around and accepting them.

  • Old White Due

    I truly hope black women rise above this.  I am a white male and I know it’s tough.  All women of all races normally want a family and a good life with their man.  All women are not objects for egotistical men who refuse to take on any responsibility.  As long as they cycle continues, black women will continue to be “enslaved” and it will never end.  rise up and say get the hell outta here!

I would love to  know the statistics of black mean with multiple baby mamas. Keep it real one time, and lay it all out on the table. This isn’t one-sided.

    If morality wasn’t set by patriarchal values, this wouldn’t be an issue. And if the NWO agenda didn’t include population reduction, this wouldn’t be an issue, but it is because it runs contrary to their objectives. Multiple fathers just means these women like to diversify. So what and get over it already. Diverse genetic codes also mean better chances of survival.

    And the quote that society likes to police women’s sexuality, especially women of colour if evidence of the NWO agenda. Who grants people the funding to do this kind of propaganda? Ask yourself that. And as some of the other sisters pointed out, why don’t we find out how many fathers/ men have children outside of one wife or gf? Don’t get started on that statistic eh? Men run around and sire children in and out of wedlock, and no one says a damn word. This study can kiss my black a$$

    • foodiefriends

      This has nothing to do with “policing sexuality”  How stupid to equate sexuality with reproduction.  Helllooooo….You can have sex without having babies.  It’s called birth control.  Or abortion.  Or adoption.  It’s just plain stupid for black women to keep having babies they can’t afford to raise by multiple men who don’t want to be fathers.  Wake up and stop blaming surveys for revealing truths you don’t want to hear.  The survey was not about black women.  It was about women in general.  This site highlighted the finding about black women because this is a black site.  Get over your victimhood and your paranoia and face facts.

    • The Rain

      We already know about how low down and no good black men are.But we can here it some more if it will make black women make better personal choices.You suffer not because black men are no good dogs,you suffer because you don’t have the self respect and self control to stay away from the ones that are no good,low down dogs.It really doesn’t matter to me if chittlins have worms in them and they make your hair fall out if you eat them,because I don’t eat chittlins.

    I can’t help but wonder why the the caucasian statistic remains so low. You BEST believe they can be just as oversexed as African American and Hispanics. Has anyone taken a look at the abortion statistics? That may prove why certain ethnic groups don’t have as many ‘Baby Daddys’….Im just saying. Some ethnic groups have the disposable income to make their poor decisions DISAPPEAR……Let’s look at THOSE statistics.

    • Joe Says So

      Yes, they are just as oversexed as black folks, but white folks do a better job of covering up their sex-capades.  That happens when you have more to lose, societally, for having multiple baby daddies and kids out of wedlock.

      Having the disposable income to ‘make their poor decisions DISAPPEAR’ is a good thing.

      Having sense to NOT MAKE MISTAKES IN THE FIRST PLACE when you DON’T have that income is even better.

      • blackfargo

        That “disposable income” greatly results from the passing down of educational expectations on children and family.  Education as a priority in a family, leads to a better platform for financial success.  It’s proven that the better educated a society is, the lower the birth rates and numbers are.  If the black community could embrace education as a tool for success, and not a “white thing” they would have a better chance at their own personal success.  Look at what the civil right activists fought for in the 60’s, only to have it disregarded so much today.  It’s a real shame.

    • The Rain

      Let’s do that and let’s also stop having unprotected sex with people you are not married to.And you women need to start acting like ladies in front of your children.If you son sees you being loose,he is going to view all women as such.If your daughter see you selling and bartering sex for money and material stuff,she is going to value stuff and money over her precious body.

    The sexual statistics are damning for black women. Much more likely to have an STD, more likely to get pregnant as a teenager, which leads to higher abortion rates. More likely to have babies with multiple fathers.

    At some point this has to be seriously dealt with as a culture. Because there is no other way to do so.

      This situation comes about because rather than trying to form stable and committed relationships to build a strong nuclear family they believe they can do the single mother thing and use the system to get a man’s money so they don’t have to have any reciprocal responsibility or obligation to him…they are often trying to use the baby as leverage to get money and/or affection or railroad somebody.

    I don’t care what color you are, as a woman, you unfortunately have a responsibility that is greater than a man.  Why?  Because you both know before hand, HE won’t get pregnant.  It takes 2 to make a baby, but you both know he isn’t having it!  Females biologically carry the human growing inside of them, not the man.  The man can easily be long gone before you even know you’re pregnant.  This is an obvious truth in almost the whole of nature, and it is what it is.  If you choose to have sex, you risk becoming pregnant, not the man.  That means, you must always provide protection if you do not want a pregnancy.  The buck stops with the ladies, and that’s the truth.  You wouldn’t walk into a dark room with someone shooting live rounds around without taking a risk of being shot would you?  Same thing applies, if you open that door and step in, you can’t bitch about the outcome being unfavorable.  And if he is of unsavory character, chances are, you probably didn’t do your homework there either.

      Only somebody did that already (went into a dark room and shot live rounds) he killed a bunch of people….

    And what’s the percentage of black men with more than one baby mama’s??? Why are black women being picked on about this??

    • The Rain

      That’s your problem,you try to do what some stupid black males do,now you have a record of every suka you’ve slept with.(a child)Black women should pick on other black women that allow themselves to be used as sperm recepticals by more than one guy.I have a problem with black males that have children out of wedlock and by more than one woman.If you don’t like being picked on for being loose and lascivious,don’t be either.If you have children by more than one guy out of wedlock,you are a slut.

    • Darth H8er

      There’s already a consensus about those men: If they are problematic and irresponsible then simply stop sleeping with them. Stop giving them babies. But who listened to common sense here? If every bad thing your demographic does is countered with pointing the finger elsewhere instead of making the adjustment, how the hell are you going to get right?

    It is quite telling that the concern expressed by the people interviewed is not that 59% of black women have multiple babies’ fathers, but that people will hold that against them.

  • Dan Freeman

    “Some believe the survey could become another way to conveniently categorize sisters as amoral baby-making machines.”-No these broads aren’t trying to play victim? Facts speak for themselves. Black women need to stop making trifling ass decisions regarding who they decide to give the pu$$y to. This pisses me the f@ck off because Black women, including some in my own family, want to get funky with me because I say that I won’t date a woman with kids.

  • shyness

    Most black women treat their vaginas like a revolving damn door and it is disgusting …. I am a black woman that worked in the healthcare field so I saw it everyday.. the procreate for the wrong reasons… what ever happenedto getting married then having kids.. but no one wants to marry us because most of us are loud ghetto obnoxious stupid and manly

  • Darth H8er

    Some of you have to ask yourselves…At the end of the day what are you
    doing defending the babymomma/babydaddy broken family model when you
    know it consistently produces a generation of weak children? You make
    yourself look
    less intelligent making all these excuses. What is so difficult about
    NOT PROCREATING WITH PEOPLE WHO WONT COMMIT? Oh that’s right those guys
    you say love to screw anything…YOU PREFER THEM of all people! Control
    your coochie or stop complaining about the bed YOU made…go on lie in
    it….and stop lying to us. Acting like you have no other choice but to
    get knocked up by somebody who doesn’t want to stick around. Full of it!

    It is interesting to see when statistics are acknowleged by some of the Black community and when they are not. When it comes to statistics that may portray Black men in a negative light, we, Black people, seem more likely to dissect the dynamics behind how such a statistic came to be. We are more likely to ask questions and grow suspicious of those statistics when it comes to Black men. We are likely to look at the history behind such a statistic in detail as it relates to the plight of Black men. We are likely to search for answers as to why Black men engage in certain behaviors. We are likely to even point fingers at a “system”, the White man, Black women, and even blame the devil while excusing his behavior. We are likely to blame the lack of fathers, bad mothers, or a terrible girlfriend when assessing a Black boy’s or man’s behavior. We will exhaust ourselves in defending Black boys and Black men. Interestingly so, we don’t seem as willing to do the same when it comes to Black girls and women. It is as if they are not allowed to have excuses. We aren’t as willing to look at the set of dynamics she may have been taught that causes her to allow men to use her body. We aren’t as willing to look at the psychology of ridiculous inhumane double standards taught to girls and boys that may create confusion. We aren’t as willing to take a look at the link between those statistics and a lack of father figures and how this may influence her choice in men, what she defines as a good man, and how she chooses to engage with men. We aren’t as willing to look at how this statistic is linked to disproportionate ratios that Black girls and women are likley to be victims of sexual violence, rape, and domestic violence at the hands of Black boys and men. Many of us would see this a Black male bashing. This is of no surprise, for we are a world who tends to coddle our boys and men, often placing more importance on the birth of a boy. It is even a belief perpetuated by religions. Yet, we somehow don’t understand how a girl or woman comes to develop low self esteem or lack of worth? It is irresponsible to post a statistic without addressing the dynamics of a statistic. It is dangerous, inconclusive, and perpetuates stereotypes that will be used against all of us, male and female. There are countless statistics in regards to rape, violence, sexual behavior, criminal activity, unemployment rates, and disease rates that could easily support negative beliefs about Black men, yet we are likely to dismiss those statistics and instead search for answers … or even excuses. As for this particular statistic….We are a community that hysterically asks for women to behave like ladies while excusing and allowing men to behave as less than gentlemen. Ironically, this is at the root of the problems within this very statistic. Double standards will eventually create a society of confusion, disassociation, and a rebellion of extremes. We have yet to learn from the past, and our hyppocrisies continue to work against us. Yes, many Black women have had babies by multiple men, but many Black men have had babies by multiple women and many of whom they do not take care of… as defined by statistics. :) Until we stop attempting to dump the issues of our communites into the laps of Black women, we will continue building countless communities of broken women and pathetic men.

      I am highly critical of BM. Most of them are Thousandaires and because they are gamely employed, many BW are lined up to date them, giving them a constant supply of coochie.

      http://livestre.am/4ElNk

  • meme

    This article is stupid because many women get divorced and get remarried and have more children… and many women have children with someone and eventually that relationship fails and the mothers (and fathers) move on… and in that process people fall in love and they may want more children with this second person… Basically this article is criticizing that; pure ridiculousness.

    Obviously the situations I spelled out above are different than those where women get pregnant recklessly and end up having a lot of kids by various men…

    • djfourmoney

      That just proves that BW are the worst judge of character or a more complex answer would be; in a culture that celebrates Eurocentric features; BW being at a disadvantage are looking for validation in BM.

  • Kim

    This is another bullshit study….. how can the study indicate 59%…. I was not a part of this study nor any black women that I know was a part of this study…. JUST PURE BS!

    • djfourmoney

      You don’t know how studies work, STFU.

  • Kim

    white women are holding steady at 22% via my study indicates that 78% white women need to go on the Maury Show and reveal the true father of their child/children…..

  • Ebony

    Here is a highly original idea. USE BIRTH CONTROL!!!!!

    Ladies if you’re going to have sex make these men wear condoms and men, be glad that a woman cares enough about you and herself to make you wear a condom. If you don’t want kids either 1. don’t have sex or two use protection if you’re going to have sex. Why is that so hard? When I was engaged I made him wear a condom and I used birth control, not because I didn’t trust him but because I never wanted to have a kid.

    Now on the other hand ladies if you want to have a kid that’s fine but make sure you have yourself together financially, spiritually, and emotionally. Make sure the man you choose to father your child is right. It’s not fair to these kids because they’re constantly being used by one parent to get to the other parent.

    • djfourmoney

      100% I use birth control and have no children, full stop.

  • Lori Metevia

    This feed reminds me of the Maurey Povich Show. Every time I watch the show, I see a pattern. The women start out angry and yelling. Then the results come out. If he is not the father, they run off stage ashamed and crying. If he is the father, they start yelling again in righteous indignation. Then after a few minutes, the women with the positive results begin to cry as well. Either way, the women are hurt and angry at the end. Somwhow there is pain when we make the choice to follow society’s current view of sex which is to have sex however and with whomever we please whether married or not. All major religions disagree with this view except for Humanism and Satanism. We cannot blame the statistics on racism because things have gotten worst than during the time of Jim Crow or slvery. The war on drugs does not completely explain this phenomena either. The true explanation is that we have embraced humanism and it is a dismal failure. Humanism declares that self is the center of the universe. Self is inherently selfish. This collective selfishness has nearly destroyed our communities. Once we put God in his proper place at the center of our lives, we will see real change and transformation. We will see marriages prosper as both man and woman come together to serve one another rather than take from one another. We will see men embrace fatherhood and women embrace motherhood in selfless devotion to their children. We will see fewer going to jail because honest work will be better than quick money. This is the only real solution.

    • djfourmoney

      There is no God first of all and Humanism is not the cause. Try again, otherwise I agree with your post.

  • jojo3a3

    Blacks will always be the most unwanted race. Stop having kids you cant feed!!

  • maxine

    Obviously if black men stayed around to look after and bring their children up in a solid,committed family unit and putting a ring on it,this wouldn’t be news.

  • sam66

    White Woman are dong it also. It should be less about race and more about woman and aids of all races.

    • djfourmoney

      Why is a Black Woman’s favorite retort is to say “White Women Do It”? You know what? You’re lucky the majority f Black Men still want Black Women, frankly I am not one of those.

      You are not a witness to typical African-American behavior, I am. Black women screw this man, having his child, screwing that man, having his child and marries neither of them.

      Make excuses about birth control and its even worst when some Black folk wanna scream about Planned Parenthood and Margaret Sanger when they use the service frequently, seems not frequent enough.

      I am starting to call the Black Community “The Lost and The Damned” named after the Biker War add-on to GTA IV.

      While Black men seemingly partial responsible, the final decision rest on women to either have that child or not. If you have that child without consulting the man then that decision is yours and yours alone, put on your big girl panties and don’t make the mistake again.

  • Petra Carlisle

    No matter how one looks at it the woman has ALL the control She does not have to have a baby with every man she sleeps with. she doesnt have to have sex with every man she meets. If the focus gets off the men and makes women more accountable maybe men would step up. Men know the type of women that accept this behavior. Of course the first time, yes excusable..but my goodness ladies many are having 4 , 5 and more babies by 3 or more baby daddies and not one man marrying them. Most of these women dont have jobs to support the first 2 kids they have. women have more control than they think regarding how men threat them. Close those legs. Shut the door. No one is saying the men aren’t responsible if it happens, but it happens because the woman opened that door knowing full well it is Her responsibility if he walks. The crazy part is many have a baby by a man already known to have kids around the globe he isn’t already supporting. Why she would think she is any different is beyond me. Bottom line: If he doesn’t think you are worth marrying, why are you having his kid?

  • Jim L Cunningham

    156 comments and only 3 mentions of condoms. That there’s your problem.

  • Monie Says

    Although when growing up my best friend and I swore we would only have kids with the same guy (we did) I still give big PROPS to women who have multiple fathers of their children. I have no idea how they keep their sanity dealing with all those men. And Black women are NOT the only ones..OMG…In addition, multiple daddies, in America, likley began when that White man starting raping and impregnating Black women during slavery so let us not forget the baseline for this behavior.

  • Huda

    The
    way you started the article is silly. Why would OWW equals to black women being hyper sexual?
    Since most of these women are having these babies with black men (73% of out of wedlock black babies, not to account for biracial babies are by black fathers who are absent), where
    are they in the equation, or is it all
    about black women being shamed and blamed for it? The solutions takes a
    tremendous reprogramming of a culture that made it acceptable to have a
    child at a young age without a present, responsible, engaged black father.
    Black American men are a failure when it comes to taking any sense of responsibility over their seeds. They sure are not the one raising and taking care of most black children in America. So, it will take everyone to change these stats. Another significant importance is
    black women religious dogma that goes against birth control and safe
    sex, but somehow accepts children who are born into a financial and
    social structure that never servers their interest, let along an
    absentee black father. I remember reading one quote by a black woman: black
    children are a blessing to America’s prison system since they often
    overpopulate it.

  • Andrew Roy

    Well gee terry, then your saying, that these women must have been married many times, and when would they after the first 2 or 3 kids, have time for these multiple jobs you speak of. And if they had these magic multiple jobs. Why are they not still employed now?
    So easy to discredit bullshit.

  • The Rain

    Black women don’t have a problem with black men being called out for their unacceptable behavior,but you start whining as soon as your unacceptable and immoral behavior is brought up or just acknowledged. They want to do as they will but not be called for it.You have been told that you are to be worshiped or that even when you are wrong you are right,so long that you actually think you can’t corrected even when you are as wrong as two left feet.You don’t want to be corrected,make better choices.You are not divine.Black men should be held accountable for their actions and so do black women.

  • alg

    Where did these numbers come from? Not fair to label ALL black women as baby hungry welfare wanting whores. Go to any poor neighborhood,no matter what color,you will find the same numbers. I’m white and know black women who are married, have the same kids with the same man it no kids at all. I also know white women with numerous baby daddys. And where are the men’s statistics??? These women are having kids with somebody,what does their stats look like?

  • joe

    Try keeping your legs closed and condoms on. MAYBE life will be easier when you don’t have a bunch of kids by different fathers that you can’t afford. Especially as youngsters. Therefor spreading the burden to everyone else even further to the rest of us. Take a look at inner city high schools around the nation. And you people wonder why money is so tight in your communities. smh But I guess this is racist. Right?Pointing out facts and what-not.

    The comments…stupidity is infectious and never fails to amaze me. I am a veteran, have been married 17.5 years, have 6 kids all by my own husband, I homeschool, live in upper- middle suburbia, hold an M.B.A, travel internationally and domestically with my husband and 6 kids and I grew up in the projects of Chicago with a single mother. The rest of you who think all African American women “need tax dollars to live” probably grew up on those same tax dollars yourself.
